The Experience

On a breezy hill is a house of charm, comfort and whitewashed simplicity, with views down the valley to the sea. It’s the inviting summer home of Antonio and Deb who, in June, up sticks from Genoa and head for this quiet eyrie. Designed by Antonio, built by his father, the house stands in 11 rugged hectares, in a landscape that has barely changed with Sardinia’s arrival on ‘the map’. Beyond is a resort (out of sight); below is a bay with white sands and turquoise waters – bustling at one end, quiet at the other. Deb’s effortless stylishness is inspired from travels to Greece, Morocco, France and Spain. Outside are cacti in pots and pristine wicker loungers, inside are cool white walls, polished concrete floors, natural fabrics, chic mosaics, billowing mosquito nets and beautiful boughs of driftwood (they make great clothes rails). Bedrooms are downstairs, off the veranda; leave the doors open, catch a glimpse of the sea. Breakfast is at the big table, a splash of family produce: breads, fruits, jams, cheeses. Kayak to uninhabited islands, take the ferry to Corsica, snorkel, surf, watch the sun go down at Capo Testa.

Accommodation

Reviews

An idyllic stay in a beautiful location.The room was spacious and comfortable. We could walk to the beach and swim, and also drive easily to places to eat. Deb and Antonio are friendly, helpful hosts with recommendations of places to visit. The breakfasts are superb, featuring his father’s homemade ricotta and salami, not to mention, fresh jams. We hope to visit again.

What a special place Tancamelis is. In an idyllic location overlooking the typical,beautiful Sardinian countryside. Owners Deb & Antonio are the perfect hosts, serving fresh breakfasts on their veranda each morning, offering suggestions for the day if requested and local restaurants for the evening -happily booking them too. Rooms are finished in the Sardinian style and have everything you need for a relaxing, away from it all break. We would definitely go back!

I had a wonderful five days here this summer. Deb and Antonio were very kind and helpful and made me feel at home immediately. Tancamelis is a beautiful B&B set in quiet, natural surroundings, close to the sea. My room was stylish, comfortable and spacious with it’s own entrance and area to sunbathe. The breakfast room is delightful- airy and elegant with a lovely view of the sea. Antonio and Deb serve healthy, delicious breakfasts each morning, made from Antonio’s father’s own produce. I loved my stay in Sardinia and definitely want to stay at this special and unique B&B again very soon.

Tancamelis is a beautiful B&B located near the city of Santa Teresa Gallura. There are three lovely designed rooms one can book. The rooms even have a small terrace with marvelous view in the garden and down on to the sea. The hosts (Deb and Antonio) are incredibly friendly and try everything to improve your stay and experience at their place. They give a lot of helpful recommendations for restaurants in the surrounding area and even reserve a table for you. Breakfast was a delight: Fresh ingredients from Antonio's father own garden and production. Best accommodation of our trip!

Tancamelis is a unique experience, starting with the beautiful garden, full of oleanders&cactuses and finish with the hospitality of Deb & Antonio.The villa is on a hill from where you have a wonderful view of the sea. She preserves a natural style, combining comfort and unique decorations. We were delighted each morning with a bio breakfast, prepared by owners. We highly recommend Tancamelis, for those that appreciate the beauty of the nature, the comfort of a special villa, the fully attention and authenticity of the hosts and the high quality of the breakfast.Thank you Deb&Antonio

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Deb & Antonio Manca

  • Marmorata beach is only 600 meters away from Tancamelis, a nice 10-minute walk. Here you can relax, enjoy the sea and bask in the sunlight and for sport lovers, there are different water sports to choose from.
  • 4 km from Tancamelis is Santa Teresa Gallura with its excellent restaurants and ice cream shops. During the evening, especially in high season, the main square and the neighbouring streets come to life with shows and small markets.
  • Only 7 km away is the city of Capotesta, famous for its beaches, coves and beautiful sunsets. Enjoy beautiful walks around the lighthouse and amongst huge granite rocks smoothened by the wind into the most unusual shapes.
  • During the summer season many events and attractions take place in the area as the Gallura Baskers, the street artist festival where artists from all over the world come to perform during the month of July in Gallura’s city centre.
  • The jazz music festival “Musica sulle Bocche” at the end of August is an important event in the area. At dawn or sunset, famous artists play in concerts held in the squares, on the beaches and amongst the granites of Capotesta.
  • From Santa Teresa’s harbour you can organise boat or sailing trips or hire a rubber boat to visit the neighbouring islands of Cavallo, Lavezzi and the famous archipelagos of Maddalena.
